The 2013 summer movie season officially kicks off next weekend with the release of Iron Man 3, but if this mash-up of trailers for a number of movies to be released this summer is any indication (assembled by Movies.com), I know I'll be spending a lot of time in the movie theater this summer. (Besides, I hate the humidity in the DC area anyway.)
Movies included in this mash-up are: Iron Man 3, The Great Gatsby, Star Trek Into Darkness (Two words: Benedict Cumberbatch), The Hangover Part III, Fast and Furious Six, Epic, After Earth, Now You See Me, The Internship, This is the End, Man of Steel, Monsters University, World War Z, White House Down, Despicable Me 2, The Lone Ranger, Pacific Rim, Grown Ups 2 (Wow, never even heard of the first one), Turbo, The Conjuring, RED 2, The Wolverine, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Elysium, Disney's Planes, Kick-Ass 2, and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
There are a few other movies I'm looking forward to this summer, including Joss Whedon's adaptation of Much Ado about Nothing, and Ryan Gosling's reunion with his Drive director, Nicolas Winding Refn, in Only God Forgives. And there's bound to be a surprise or two. (At least I hope so!)
